Robert Guerrero vs Andre Berto voted WBC Fight of the Year

German Villasenor

Robert Guerrero and Andre Berto have been recognized by the WBC with the sanctioning body's Fight of the Year award for 2012.

Robert Guerrero and Andre Berto left the ring with about one good eye between them on November 17, with Guerrero's hand raised in the WBC interim welterweight title fight that aired live on HBO from Ontario, California, and fight fans cheering an old-fashioned, gritty, often dirty, and hard-hitting brawl that went the full 12 rounds.

Now, the WBC has awarded the grueling battle with its annual Fight of the Year award.

"Anytime you're recognized by the WBC in a fight of the year candidate, the fans are the ones that benefit. When fighters step in the ring we put our lives on the line and it's rewarding to be recognized for doing so," Guerrero said via press release.

"I also want to show appreciation to Andre Berto for being a true warrior, because without his courage and heart, we wouldn't have had the epic showdown that people are still talking about today," he added.

Guerrero is currently rumored to be the next opponent for Floyd Mayweather, which would take place on May 4 in Las Vegas.
